"I use the same modus operandi for most of my albums (except the ones that are composed): I lay some free improvised moods (usually on rhythm instruments) that serve as the frame or background for the rest of the piece... I call this process ¨real time compositions¨ as I never have any ideas or plans before the actual recording starts... When I feel that the group or orchestral feelings reflect the mood I stop adding new layers or instruments... On my solo guitar or piano sets &...

"parede que me toca" reunites three works: "mirrita": From the sound of the machine, other sounds are perceived as organic. They are not, but the machine is built by man. The silence interrupts the machine. The animal deflagrates. It challenges it but it is not freed from it. The machine is there. So is the human; "comoção": It begins with a blow that turns into a wave of noise. Another comes. The noise reveals itself human and makes us feel something;...

“This is my first album devoted purely to field recordings. Talmenka is the name of the river in Altai Region and a village that stands on it. It's been a very inspiring place for me, surrounded by the woods, lakes and two rivers. So here is a bunch of tracks I recorded on my several trips there.

"Overall, it is very hard for me to describe just how I feel about Marc Broude’s “Medicine”. Though I do listen to a lot of experimental music, this album has taken me to a new dimension that I just can’t fully comprehend. The dark and disturbing atmospheres are magnificent, and every element on this album works to create a very gloomy and depressing mood, whether it be the jazz guitars, the haunting singing bowls, or even the harmonicas or accordions in the end track. The album is... Topics: Experimental, Drone, Dark Ambient, Psychedelic, Musique concrète, Avant-Garde Jazz, Other,...

"Dreamscapes Volume 1 is a collaborative album which arose from discussions Joanne Gabriel and I had in early 2010; particularly An Aerial View of Red Earth, which was inspired by a discussion we had about flying dreams.

Nature Circuit’s first “album,” Fuck This, Tilted Field, mixes elements of previous releases (most notably the power electronics of Songs in the Key of Death) with many new ideas and sound sources, producing a much wider range of textures.
